General: How do I add a “Discuss in forum” link to a news item?

You can add a link to any news item or piece of site content by simply clicking on the little Green “Factory D” icon to the right of Insert Image and Insert Page Break links at the bottom of any edit box.

When clicked, this will insert a piece of code like this at the cursor.

The number 7 relates to the number of the default forum for this sort of comment discussion but you can change the number to match the specific forum if you want. Just hover over a forum title and note the forum id number and use this, but to save you time, here’s the full list:
